I had a great time!!
Thank you very much!!
Our server, Christina, was great! I always enjoy dining at Zuma.
Very good recommend it highly. Informal and interesting
Great meal and ambience, but never inexpensive. Service exceptional!
Our waitress was very polite and I formative. The interior decor was gorgeous.
I always recommend Zuma! One of a kind experience! tasting menu is to die for
We went there for my boyfriend’s birthday dinner and it was amazing! Our waiter Kong was super attentive and nice! He knew my boyfriends name as well was which was very thoughtful and made our dinner even more special! Will defiantly recommend and be back on another special occasion!
Great food, great service, awesome ambiance! Totally worth it.
Huge, noisy ,expensive--good for the expense crowd
Very zen like environment. Impressive stone work walls. Service was helpful, food was good but less than we expected.
The restaurant is beautiful. Food excellent. I had very slow service, forgetting an appetizer and keeping it on the bill, not getting everyone’s main courses at the same time. Unfortunate
Great atmosphere, food was pretty good but not out of this world for the price, which is hefty. You’re paying for the ambiance.
I was impressed with the venue (wood, metals features ) love the plates. I was however not wowed by the menu. I visited for lunch during restaurant week, very limited choices.
Reserved at Zuma for a Restaurant Week lunch and our table was still trying to decide on how our overall impression of the place met our expectations. First order of business is that this place is decidedly on the pricy side. You might expect this at a midtown outpost though. The $26 Restaurant Week lunch morfed into $46 since dessert was not included ($10 supplement) and several of the appys and entrees also had $10 supplements. The upside was that there were $10 offerings of wine and sake. However, cold sake in a wine glass? This was a first. The salmon and Wagyu beef entrees were first rate and the dumpling appys were just so so. Service was friendly, attentive but not intrusive. I would consider giving them a revisit as for this visit the jury is still out.
Service is not bad
Food is normal not special (restaurant week)
We always come back to Zuma if we are in NY
We love this place and the food.
Always a safe bet
Zuma is a gorgeous restaurant. The food was delicious, great menu. The service was great. Can't wait to go back.
I enjoyed their food as well as service as always. I would come back again and again.
Food, cocktails and service all amazing.
They should not have joined Restaurant Week if they were going to offer the least Zuma has to offer, in selection or quantity.
Good good good
Beautifully prepared food in an outstanding setting. Be prepared for an expensive meal if you go outside Restaurant Week lunch. Smallish portions.
table was too small for 3 with so many dishes
not all the dishes were as successful. I do not recommend the dumplings.
Came for a business lunch and was seated at the sushi bar when I requested a table. Sushi is amazing but they brought out everything at once and forgot my drink. Probably just a busy day but still for the price you pay you should expect better service. I’m only writing this review because it’s the second time for lunch I was disappointed. Dinner with drinks has been much better overall.
The restaurant was pretty good and the service was great!
However I was surprised that we had wooden chopsticks to eat, considering the price point and the atmosphere!
The whole experience from reception to end of service was great.
The food was good but nothing exceptional. Too expensive for the quality
Lovely atmosphere. The space is actually gorgeous. Quality of food was just fair. For the price, we would not go back.
Food was amazing!! Sushi rolls were fresh and tasty, great ambiance and service was on point. Great experience will be back! Beautiful restaurant.
Had an amazing anniversary here. Zuma made everything really great, great staff, great food and the tasting menu was off this world.! My girlfriend was super happy and very surprised by the quality of food and staff. Really recommend it
Prenotato per le 8:30 PM seduto alle 21:27..Bad!!!!!
Cibo lontano anni da Novicov......
Great experience excellent food
Zuma like everywhere
Black cod !
Food was very good! However, the prices were high and the service wasn’t very good. We waited for our drinks for about 25 minutes. Also, it was very noisy inside. Would recommend to others, if they’re okay with the downfalls.
Dinner was delicious - the sea scallops were FANTASTIC. Ambiance was beautiful - service was excellent. Great place for dinner and or special occasions - birthdays and anniversary.
there was definitely a problem with this reservation. We reserved for 3 people at 8pm, and were not physically seated until 8:30pm. They told us they were running late and they would seat us in 5 minutes at 7:54pm, then we waited until 8:30 then spoke to the hostess who were unkind unsympthetizing and not sorry for their mistake. The manager talked to us at 8:34pm after we sat down and I said the service was unacceptable. that was it. it was so loud and we were 3 people seated at a table for 8 people, we could barely hear each other and waiters were not as attentive as they could be.
The Standard Omakase was great. We thought there was not going to be enough food but it ended up we were so full towards the end of dinner that we could not finish the last three dishes. It is quite expensive but great for a special occasion. Our server and runners that brought us the food were fantastic.. some explained the food better than others.
